Southeastern Freight Lines' Kinston Service Center Celebrates 35 Years of Service

Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 35 years of quality without question service at its Kinston, North Carolina, service center.

The Kinston service center opened for business on June 20, 1983 with eight dock doors and seven associates. Four years after opening, the facility moved to its current location, 159 Highway 11 South in Kinston, North Carolina, and has grown to 48 dock doors and 66 associates.

"As we celebrate this milestone in Kinston, it's incredible to reflect on not only the impact we've had on our customers, but to realize how much our team has grown," said Steve Kell, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. "With the commitment of our employees, we look forward to continue growing our shipments and success year-after-year."

The Kinston service center was the 15th service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. The company now operates 89 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico, and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
